There are many ways to arrange a Carnival of Feminists, and since we’re not getting seriously into middle age, in carnival editions at least, it is hard to find a new one, but in the Carnival of Feminists No 58, Hops has created a delightful method of arrangement (with help from her 13-year-old sister).
As always there are some wonderful posts, including an interesting reaction to the burqa and and an interesting example of a “joke” about gendered language.
But don’t waste time over here – do go over there and check it out!
And should you be in Sheffield tomorrow for Fem 08 – sorry you need to have booked already since it is entirely sold out with, I’m told, a huge waiting list – do look me up and if you’re interested in hosting the carnival let me know. I’m chairing a session on grassroots feminist media, with speakers Jess McCabe from The F Word, which hosted Carnival 35, Gill Court and Charlotte Cooper from Subtext, and Red Chidgey from the Feminist Activist Forum.
(And you don’t have to be British, or in Sheffield, to volunteer to host the carnival – I’m looking for hosts from every corner of the globe. You can be a new blogger, or a veteran, or somewhere inbetween. And if you consider yourself feminist I probably will too. Don’t be shy!)
